    Birthdays- 9/6

    Reds:

    Hal Jeffcoat -Did the reverse Rick Ankiel, converting from a decent outfielder to a decent pitcher in mid-career.

    Vince DiMaggio -Appeared ever so briefly for the Reds in '39 and '40. Wonder if they voted him a World Series share?

    Others:

    Derek Lee (36) - Just hit a grand slam the other day, I believe.

    Harry Danning -A good-hitting catcher of the 1930s, pretty much forgotten now. Nickname: "Harry the Horse".

    Red Faber -One of the the "clean" Black Sox; ended up in the Hall of Fame.

    Don't forget Harry Perkowski (90) who pitched for Cincy in the late 40's and early 50's. He was part of the great Borkowski/Perkowski Dynamic Duo of that era of Reds history.
